Make sure you are aware that the aerator on this faucet is not the typical flow style that most of the people are used with. I have recently returned a Hansgrohe Cento because of the planar flow and excessive splashing. Replaced with a Moen, also from Costco.

I will give it a try despite the flow does seem kind of weaker, that's because it has to comply with the Cali regulation on water saving.
i combined the 20 off 100 costco masterpass promo, helped with the HST. Total is 192.

The complaint is not about a weaker flow. Planar flow means no classic aerator. Imagine water coming out of a garden hose without a nozzle or wand, just water coming straight out of the hose, clear flow. This is how the flow is on this faucet.

I know at this price point you shouldn't have to, but can you install an aerator? The ones you simply slip between the connection pieces?

Actually... laminar flow should splash less, if it's pressure compensated, hospital is one place where you can't have aerator because of the risk of splashing and spreading bacteria.

This is true although I have heard similar splashing issues with Laminar flow faucets. I think part of it is the distance from the end of the spout to the base of a flat sink. You're right though that hospitals all use laminar flow faucets to reduce splashing when washing hands and to help control the spread of bacteria.

i bought the Hansgrohe Cento Kitchen Faucet, Chrome Finish, Item #1189819 for $139.99 during the last sale and i find the flow greater than the old moen one i had but harder to finely set flow (very sensitive handle to anything between max and off). But at this price the Hansgrohe is much better than Moen in quality and build in my opinion (i am not a plumber and i replace whole faucets not cartridges when they leak). i do find my shirt much wetter than before though, so i wish i had looked at and tried the faucets with the shield spray design first ... we don't use the dishwasher and it is a pain to rinse dishes with the Hansgrohe unless you have an apron or like a fine mist / wet spot in the area of your abdomen. Magnetic click is nice but i don't really notice a need for it if your weight is properly installed.

I bought the same faucet during the last sale as well and I love it, but I have the same complaints - I'm definitely splashing more. I've become adjusted to opening the faucet for less pressure, which typically handles that problem, but every now and then I'll still get nailed. It's always spoons and lids, every time. I don't use the spray function all that much - only when I'm dealing with very stubborn stuck-on food bits. The entire body is metal but the head is plastic, so the button to engage the spray feels a bit cheap, but everything else feels extremely solid. Installation was a breeze and the magnetic click is much nicer than the POS builder's special I had before my last faucet.

It's silly, but I really like the way the water feels on my hands when I'm washing them with this faucet.

All in all, any complaints I had are swiftly overtaken by just how nice the faucet is. I regret nothing.
